Welcome Back: Let's get to it

I want to extend an enthusiastic welcome to all of you — students, faculty and staff — as we start a new academic year. What an eventful summer it has been. Our nation came to the edge of financial default and political paralysis. Economic turmoil, social unrest and political strife flared across the globe. And last week, we survived an earthquake and a hurricane. I look forward to the possibilities of a new year.
